Thursday October 5th, Archipel presents ‘Architecture as fossilized music’ within the Concert Hall season theme ‘Metamorphosis: transformations /adjustments in Bruges’. Music and Architecture!

Trip Along Flemish roads #02

In the context of the idea ‘Along the Flemish roads’ we explore this fall ‘The Far East’. In real pioneer style, we draw with camera, sketchbook and valies in the hand of Leuven, Flemish Brabant, Hageland, Haspengouw, Hasselt, Limburg and Antwerp Kempen to Antwerp or vice versa. You can also expect this time on the Archipelago signature of impressive architectural highlights, but also unexpected and less known projects.

Miscellaneous For a respectful, sustainable renovation and redevelopment of the municipal swimming pool in Ostend

On January 11, 2016 the Ostend city council decided to discontinue the ongoing bouwmeester- procedure for the renovation of the Ostend municipal pool. The pool complex (architects Paul Felix and Jan Tanghe, designed in 1967-71, built in 1972-76) was on the Flemish Inventory for Architectural Heritage, and was given a high locus value in Ostend plan Architectural Heritage. Archipel launched a petition for an adapted reuse.

Trip 日本 Japan | GROUP 1: SPRING 2018

When Archipel sent a survey in June 2017 to measure the interest for the 2018 Japan trip, the response was overwhelming. More than 300 people want to join, 130 in the Easter vacation.
Try to avoid Eastern vacation! … That was the wise advice that European and Japanese tour operators gave us. Because we know that the Easter holiday is the only option for many people, we have been able to decorate one trip, 80 places, but we still offer the trip twice in another period. It will be 3 trips.
